@ OP: I misread your post, and thought you'd already purchased the 4790k. If you haven't bought the chip yet, pay the extra 20-40 and go skylake.
Ok, i go for Skylake smile.gif
I have one more question. Whatever i choice( motherboard ) there is no more PCI, so i have to upgrade my old Creative SB Xtreme Gamer, as well.
With the new technology / onboard sounds, do you think they are okay for gaming / music ?
Thank you

It seems like Intel could easily just add more cores, yet instead we have tiny chips with literally half of the die area dedicated to iGPU - core count increases on mainstream platform stopped dead as soon as AMD wasn't a threat any more.

That's the whole issue. Most CPU's use scaling; adding more transistors for more units for faster compute in the same die size or smaller. The fact of the matter is we aren't shrinking enough at each point in time to increase transistor count like in the past. That means we aren't able to double transistor count like before, its much harder. So they look towards making things more efficient in the same power envelope, which is extremely important. Intel has partners they need to thing about and platform price. A 5960X would wreck most VRMs used on Z170 motherboards, it also uses much more power (almost double in some cases). So increasing the CPU core count would lead to higher cost motherboards. Also the 5960X has quad channel support for people would be looking for quad channel kits which also cost more. Increasing the core count would also increase platform cost, and that is part of the issue, as is maintaining yields on CPUs with more transistors. The lithography technology is extremely sensitive, not only that right now we have a shortage of Xeon (gas) b/c of the Ukraine crisis.
